Excerpt

 

I realize
we’re still shaking hands, and his eyes are taking me in. “Uh, Shannon. Shannon
Jacoby. Nice to meet you.” I find my voice.
He looks
around the room and bursts out laughing, a flash of straight white teeth and a
jaw I want to nuzzle making me inhale sharply. That laugh is the sound of
extraordinary want entering my body, taking up residence low in my belly, and
now waiting for a chance to pick china patterns and paint colors to really
consider itself at home.
Go away,
want. I’ve banished you.
Want
ignores me and settles in, cleaning out the cobwebs that have taken up
residence where I used to allow desire and hope and arousal to live.
Squatter.
“Shannon,
this has to be the strangest way I’ve ever met a woman.” One corner of his
mouth curls up in a sexy little smile, like we’re on a beach drinking alcohol
out of coconuts carved by Cupid and not in a ratty old bathroom with a
fluorescent tube light that starts buzzing like a nest of mosquitoes at an
outdoor blood bank.
“You don’t
get around much, then,” I say. My toes start to curl as my body fights to contain
the wellspring of attraction that is unfurling inside me. No. Just…no. I
can’t let myself feel this. You spend enough time trying not to feel something
and all that work gets thrown away with one single flush.
He does
that polite laugh thing, eyes narrowing. I decide to just stare openly and
catalog him right back. Brown hair, clipped close, in a style that can only
come at the hands of the owner of a very expensive salon. The bluish-gray suit,
textured and smooth at the same time, shimmering and flat as well under the
twitchy light. Skin kissed by the sun but also a bit too light, as if he used
to spend a lot of time outdoors but hasn’t recently.
A body like
a tall tennis player’s, or a golfer’s, and not my dad with his pot-bellied
buddies getting in a round of nine holes at 4 p.m. just so they can have an
excuse to drink their dinner. Declan is tall and sleek, confident and
self-possessed. He moves like a lion, knowing the territory and owning it.
Always
aware of any movement that interests him.
I’m 5’ 9”
and he’s taller than me by at least half a foot. Tall girls always do a mental
check: could I wear high heels with him? Steve hated when I
wore high heels, because it put me eye-to-eye with him.
“What are
you doing in the men’s room?” he asks, smirking at me.

Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued.

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

A fervent adventure ensues, and attraction builds as the excitement of the night unfolds. Sparks fly in more ways than one just as she finds out who’s stealing her heart.

Synopsis
Dear Isaiah,
Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you free pancakes and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.
But you did notice.
We spent a “week of Saturdays” together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute.
I saved every letter you ever sent, your words quickly becoming my religion.
But you went radio silent on me months ago, and then you had the audacity to walk into my diner yesterday and act like you’d never seen me in your life.
To think … I almost loved you and your beautifully complicated soul.
Almost.
Whatever your reason is—I hope it’s a good one.
Maritza the Waitress
PS – I hate you, and this time … I mean it.

One fiery American woman and one hot British guy? The language of love knows no boundaries…

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes the hot, new romance guaranteed to sweep you away while scorching the sheets, WANDERLUST! A brand new, sinfully sexy romance, WANDERLUST is now available on all retailers! Get your copy delivered now!

 

 

✮✮✮WANDERLUST is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.

My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure.

I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.

Except there’s a catch…

***

One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…

And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.

 

EXCERPT!!

~GRIFFIN~

There’s one word a woman can utter that gets a man’s blood flowing south instantly.

Okay. That’s not true.

There are about twenty thousand that produce that effect, because when you fancy a woman, nearly anything remotely sexy can drive you crazy with desire for her.

Imagine if she says, I’m going to take off a sock.

Boom. Implied nudity. Hard as a rock.

Perhaps she asks, Do you like strawberries?

Obviously that means she wants me to eat them off her breasts. Flagpole raised.

But then there are some that are so direct, so spot on, she might as well be saying, I’d like you to fuck me hard all night long.

Which, for the record, might possibly be my favorite thing a woman could ever say to me. In fact, I might need to make that my own personal addendum to the bucket list.

At the moment, though, the word is proposition.

As I walk to the restaurant Joy has chosen on Rue de Bac, I keep replaying that deliciously inviting message.

I have a proposition for you.

What could it possibly be but some fantastic arrangement where we shag all night and still get along for work? No strings, no pain, no heartbreak. Sign me up right-the-hell now. That would be fantastic. A promise of orgasm-drenched nights, capped off by an uncomplicated good-bye when I take off for Indonesia in a few more months, finally visiting the places around the world Ethan and I marked on a map when we were younger.

As I round the corner, Christian’s words have the temerity to appear in the forefront of my brain.

Don’t you make the same mistake. You can’t mix business and pleasure. We’re lucky to have the jobs we have.

We are lucky to have our jobs. I don’t disagree with his basic premise, but I doubt Joy’s proposition will jeopardize mine. Besides, I really only need to keep my job for the next two and a half months. That’s all she needs me for at her company, and then I’m gone. Who knows where I’ll end up after I take off on my great adventure? We made so many marks on that map. If I found it, it’d be full of pinholes, I’m sure.

Travel everywhere, Ethan wrote.

He can’t. So I must.

There’s simply no way that Joy’s have hot sex with me every single night starting now will interfere with my bigger plans. I can juggle business and pleasure. I can enjoy the woman, the gig, and the checking off of each item on the bucket list.

When I reach the door of Gabriel’s, a restaurant started by a French-Brazilian cook who’s now become a rock star chef in New York City, I’m more certain than ever that I can have my cake and eat it, too. Preferably off Joy’s soft supple belly.

With that enticing image front and center, I smooth a hand down my black shirt, push open the door, and head inside.

Happy Release Day & Review – Definite by Kaylee Ryan

See My Review Below!

Title: Definite

Series: Soul Serenade #3

Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult

Release Date: March 20, 2018

 

Blurb
Lauren captivated me with those big brown eyes of hers, and
I knew my life would never be the same. What started out as friendship, has
turned into so much more.
I was shocked when Tristian asked for my number. There hasn’t been a day since
that I haven’t heard from him. He may be the drummer, but that deep sexy voice,
it turns me inside out.

I assumed it would be one and done, but that’s not how our story ends.

I worry it’s not what he wants. He tells me he’s Definite.

My Review…

Book Three of the Soul Serenade Series…

The first book I read from Kaylee was Hey Whiskey, see my review here! I loved it and couldn’t wait to read this.

Even though it’s book three and I haven’t read books one and two, this can totally be read as a standalone.

This story of Tristan and Lauren (Ren) is just lovely! Their friendship grows over time and becomes an all consuming love.

Lauren is a small town girl, and she is scared of her love for Tristan and for thing things that happen between them in the story.  She is wary and that’s ok!

Tristan is the perfect hero, rocker and gentleman.  He knows what he wants and knows who he loves and isn’t afraid to go out and grab it with everything he has.

This story is the perfect blend of romance, love, sexiness and with a touch of angst that keeps you turning the pages until the end!

Another fantastic story by Kaylee Ryan! I can’t wait to see what comes out next!
